Title:Industrial Waste Air Model (IWAIR): Technical Background Document
Document Date:11/01/2002
Description:This document provides technical background information on the Industrial Waste Air (IWAIR) model, and accompanies the Guide for Industrial Waste Management for use in evaluating inhalation risks. It explains the model selection and gives an overview of CHEMDAT8, emission model input parameters, and mathematical development of emissions; describes the development of dispersion factors using ISCST3 and how these are used in the model; addresses the exposure factors used in the model; details the health benchmarks used in the model and how these were developed if health benchmarks were not available from standard sources; describes the calculation of risk; and includes references. The appendices contain chemical-specific data used in emission modeling, summary data for 29 meteorological stations, derivation of chronic inhalation non-cancer and cancer health benchmark values, and sensitivity analysis of ISC Air Model.
